Happy New Year!

Yesterday, I got some amazing noodles at Canton Snacks. (They open as early as 8am in the morning so you can eat noodles all day!)

Today I hit up Two Rivers Mall for their Lunar New Year event. It was delightfully cheesy and reminded me a lot of the cultural festivals in the Midwestern United States! They had stations for learning calligraphy, learning chopsticks, trying on historical costumes, etc. Everyone looked like they had a great time.

At the Chinese knot station, I had trouble assembling the knots and a friendly Kenyan helped me out. I was really impressed ’cause he spoke amazing Chinese!

I didn’t expect Nairobi to host any kind of Lunar New Year events so this was a charming surprise my first weekend back in Kenya.

I used to edit PDFs using GIMP. I would open the PDF in GIMP, make edits, export it as a .mng file, and convert it back.

$ convert -reverse pdf.mng pdf.pdf

This would work well except all the texts were rasterized.

I recently tried editing PDFs using LibreOffice Draw again and was delighted to discover its PDF editing capabilities have improved. Gonna use LibreOffice Draw from now on.
